    stage 3 wrx overboosting?!?

    My 02 wrx is/has been overboosting sometimes in 3rd, and 4th-6th, recently retuned at P&L in chicago but even with my previous tune i was still overboosting, using a Prosport halo series gauge, mods are: blouch 16g-xt, dw565 injectors, walboro255, turboxs tmic, turboxs turbo back, cobb sri, grimmspeed ebcs, perrin turbo inlet, perrin uppipe, cobb lightweight crank pulley, ngk step one colder plugs, jdm v7 6 speed swap.
    Havent been able to see any boost leaks and my afr's are pretty good under boost and at idle, would it be smart to throw in a manual boost controller too and run a hybrid setup?

    You could run a hybrid setup, as long as you get it tuned again.

    How much are you over boosting? And are you seeing it from logging, or just with the gauge? Cause unfortunately, Prosports aren't the most accurate gauges made...

    My Prosport gauge was saying I was at boost near 25 when I was tuned to 20.5 on my first STI.

    Turns out after some logging, I was fine. The gauge was off.
